The Cost of Compliance: Patient Radiation Dose Monitoring
The Joint Commission (TJC) dose monitoring requirements for hospitals with diagnostic radiology services can be broken into three major categories: fluoroscopy dose monitoring, computed tomography (CT) dose monitoring, and CT protocol review. Complete coverage of these requirements can be costly in terms of employee time-cost and the cost of dose monitoring services. In this webinar, Jered Wells, PhD, DABR, Senior Medical Physicist, will provide cost comparisons of in-house and software-based dose monitoring compliance solutions. In addition, he will highlight the cost and need for medical physicist support as a critical contribution to the quality and utility of the dose monitoring deliverable.
